Richarlison scored both Everton goals but, down to ten men for 50 minutes, the Toffees couldn't claim all three points against newly promoted Wolves.

Former Hornets Marco Silva and Richarlison will be fairly happy with their debuts which would likely have been happier but for a poor tackle leading to a red card by captain Phil Jagielka. Everton were clearly the better side when both teams were at full strength. Richarlison scored off of a scrambled following a Leighton Baines set piece delivery to put the Toffees up 1-0. Just before halftime Wolves equalized through a Ruben Neves free kick that was the result of Jagielka's sending off. The sides traded goals in the second half including a wonderfully placed 2nd for Richarlison. Raul Jiminez completed the scoring and the honors were split on opening day.

Everton officially announced the signing of Shakhtar Donetsk winger Bernard to a four-year deal on a free transfer.

The 25-year-old Brazilian has spent the last five seasons with the Ukrainian giants and has made 14 caps for Brazil, although he did not feature at this summer's World Cup. The addition of Bernard will only complicate Marco Silva's job with the multitude of options the club now has on the wings. Said Silva: "Bernard is a quick player, very good technically and he can play on the left or right wings and as an offensive midfield player behind the striker. He has experience of playing in the Champions League for Shakhtar Donetsk for the past five years and the fact he has 14 caps for Brazil is a further reflection of his quality."

Everton made a flurry of signings on Transfer Deadline Day with moves for Barcelona's Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes.

Everton were quiet for the most part during the summer transfer window with their biggest move coming in manager Marco Silva—until Thursday. The day started with a £27 million deal for Barcelona defender Yerry Mina, who impressed for Colombia at the World Cup this summer. As part of the deal for the 23-year-old, Barcelona inserted a buyback clause, like they did for Gerard Deulofeu years back. But as an added bonus, Everton were able to secure a £2 million loan move for midfielder Andre Gomes, who will significantly strengthen the side in central midfield after failing to secure much playing time since arriving from Valencia last year.

Everton has moved to fortify its aging defense with a £18 million move for Barcelona left-back Lucas Digne.

With Phil Jagielka, Leighton Baines and Seamus Coleman all showing signs that their best days are behind them, signing the 25-year-old Digne to a five-year deal goes beyond just the Champions League experience he will offer the club after a career with stops at PSG, Barcelona and Roma, according to manager Marco Silva. "It is important to say that he is a player who, from the first moment he was contacted, showed enormous desire to play at Everton," Silva said. "He is a high-quality player, aggressive, with good technical ability and in the past five seasons he has played two years at Paris St-Germain, one in Roma and for the past two seasons he has demonstrated his clear quality in Barcelona."

Everton are closing in on the capture of Richarlison in a deal that could be worth up-to £50m.

New Toffees boss Marco Silva was key in helping to bring the Brazil under-20 star to the Premier League from Campeonato Brasileiro Série A outfit Fluminense less than a year ago when he was manager of Watford. Richarlison took the league by storm following a string of outstanding performances before Christmas [5-goals and 4-assists in 13 games], but he faded badly during the second half of the season and struggled to recapture his early form [no returns in 2018]. However, his dip wasn’t enough to dissuade potential suitors and Everton look to have stolen a march on their rivals with the Hornets poised to recoup more four times their outlay in just 11 months. The pace and power of Richarlison would go some way towards helping abate growing tension on the Everton terraces as supporters became increasing disillusioned under former manager Sam Allardyce.

Wayne Rooney is expected to become a DC United player after the MLS club agreed a compensation package with Everton.

The former England captain should arrive Stateside on Thursday and will pen a deal said to be worth around £10m making him the highest paid player in the club’s history. BBC Sport reports that Rooney, who cannot officially join until the mid-season transfer window opens on July 10, will sign a two-and-a-half-year deal while others indicate three. Rooney could make his debut against the Vancouver Whitecaps at the opening of the new 20,000-seater Audi Field stadium four days later. Rooney arrived on Merseyside 12 months ago after spending 13 successful years at Manchester United and his return was meant to be a sign of their intent heading into the new season, but Ronald Koeman's rein lasted just 9 games before being sacked. The highlight of his brief return to Goodison will undoubtedly be a sublime hat-trick against West Ham United, which included a spectacular effort from his own half. Although many may not agree, the Premier League has lost one of its greats!

Concerns over the fitness of Gylfi Sigurdsson prior to the World Cup look to be a little misplaced following his performance in the historic 1-1 draw with Argentina on Saturday.

The Iceland star suffered a serious knee ligament injury back in March, and despite the early optimism, Sigurdsson did not play another competitive match during 2017/18. His lack of game-time called into question his selection for the national side. However, after just 87 minutes of competitive football, Sigurdsson starred against standout favourites Argentina. The influential skipper covered more ground, during the Group D opener [11,048 m], than any other player, in fact, it was a kilometre more than the team average. Sigurdsson attempted 41 sprints, of which, 3% were over 20 km/h with a top speed 27.22 km/h, once again topping his international teammates. "Generally, he’s very fit," Icelandic football reporter Magnus Mar Einarsson said: "You could see that some of the players were very tired towards the end of the game, but not Gylfi. He leads by example, putting all the running in."

The Marco Silva era at Everton will soon begin with the club announcing the 40-year-old's hire on Thursday.

Chairman Farhad Moshiri has been chasing Silva for almost a year now since sacking Ronald Koeman in the fall and now has the Portuguese manager on a long-term contract with a new era and system on Merseyside being installed. Said the former Watford and Hull City manager: "We have a lot of work to do in this next month and it is important to prepare everything in the right way. But there will be even more important work to do from the start of pre-season into the first Premier League match of next season. I know what our fans expect - they expect results but not only results. I want our fans to be proud when they see our team on the pitch. I want them to feel that we are committed, that we are working hard and enjoying our football because that is important as well."

Wayne Rooney is still a member of Everton Football Club, for the time being, as he waits on a deal to DC United.

More than two weeks has passed since reports confirmed that the former Manchester United star agreed to a move to the MLS side, but no announcement has been made as the sides work out all the details of another big-name move to MLS. Said DC United manager Ben Olsen: "Nothing is done, so I don't want to get into talk of arrival until he actually arrives. Nothing is ever done in this world and when you're looking at a deal of this scope and size. We'll see, but hopefully we can get it done."

Everton look to finally have gotten their man with Marco Silva set to become the club's next manager by the end of the week.

The Toffees tried to appoint Silva in the fall after sacking Ronald Koeman but settled for Sam Allardyce after Watford claimed tampering charges before axing Silva in the winter. But Silva is expected to sign a three-year deal with Everton in the coming days as new director of football Marcel Brands' first move since taking over. Said Brands: "I think it is important that he [the new manager] wants to work in the new philosophy, the new strategy of how we want to work with a director of football. I think it is important that he creates the environment for the long-term, and I think it is important that he is a modern coach."

Gylfi Sigurdsson has been named in Iceland’s 23-man World Cup squad despite missing the last two months of the Premier League campaign due to injury.

It was initially hoped that Sigurdsson would be back for the season run-in after suffering knee ligament damage during the 2-0 win over Brighton back in March, but in the build-up to final game, former Toffees boss Sam Allardyce confirmed the playmaker was "still a way off, unfortunately." However, his absence from domestic football did not prevent manager Heimir Hallgrímsson from calling up the Everton star and Sigurdsson will have two friendly internationals against Norway and Ghana to prove his fitness. Iceland begin their World Cup campaign on June 16 against the 2014 runners-up Argentina in Moscow and they will do well to qualify for the knockout phase. They then take on Nigeria before Group D concludes against Croatia, who comfortably edged out Greece 4-1 on aggregate in a play-off.

Everton officially announced the end of the Sam Allardyce era at Goodison Park as the club will begin searching for a new manager.

Allardyce arrived at the end of November after the club sacked Ronald Koeman for a poor start to the season. The former England national team manager was able to bring the club into eighth place, but his style of play frustrated supporters and the team's chairman acted immediately at the end of the season despite a year left on his contract. Said the club in a statement: "Sam was brought in at a challenging time last season to provide us with some stability and we are grateful to him for doing that. However, we have made the decision that, as part of our longer-term plan, we will be appointing a new manager this summer and will be commencing this process immediately."

Oumar Niasse's eighth goal of the season wasn't enough to trigger a comeback as Everton closed out the campaign with a 3-1 defeat at West Ham.

Everton boss Sam Allardyce made two changes to the side which drew 1-1 with Southampton as Niasse and Ramiro Funes Mori came in for Nikola Vlasic and Yannick Bolasie. The Toffees struggled to contain the home side early as Jordan Pickford was called into action to deny Mark Noble inside 10 minutes. Having been pinned back throughout the first half, Everton went behind when Manuel Lanzini beat Pickford with a low strike just before the break. In the 63rd minute, Marko Arnautovic doubled the deficit with a dipping shot that fooled Pickford. Niasse provided a lifeline when he swiveled and blasted home from close in the 73rd minute, but Lanzini curled beyond Pickford and in off the post to cap the match with eight minutes remaining.

Reports in England and the U.S. have confirmed that forward Wayne Rooney has agreed to move to D.C. United this summer.

And the veteran forward won’t be available to feature for the Toffees one final time this weekend after undergoing a minor operation on his knee that will rule him out of the season finale. The move to DC United is expected to be in the range of £12 million although manager Sam Allardyce said he hadn’t been informed of a formal decision yet. Meanwhile, Allardyce said the club is still waiting on the fitness of midfielders Theo Walcott and James McCarthy for Sunday’s match against West Ham: There is a chance for Theo. Mason is back training as well. "But I am not sure, with what we have available at centre half, we need to risk him, because he is short of match practice. But he is training with us, so we will decide that later on today."

Everton waited until literally the last second to steal a point off a determined Southampton side in a 1-1 draw on Saturday evening.

With both Wayne Rooney and Theo Walcott out for the Toffees, young midfielder Tom Davies rose to the occasion with his 96th-minute equalizer to capitalize on Southampton's late misfortune. After a foul in the opposition half, two minutes over the announced stoppage time, Davies pounced on his chance, sending a shot off Southampton defender Wesley Hoedt to bring the Everton faithful to their feet at Southampton's misery, one of only three shots on target for Everton.
